|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

The Swamp Patch quilt block is made with exactly the same patches as the Swamp Angel quilt block. The only difference is that an additional colour has been added to this block. See if you can spot the difference.
Both of the sample quilts shown here have the individual quilt blocks laid out on point, but with very different results. There is no end to the interesting variations you can create in your own quilt, with fabric choices and different ways to set the blocks.
